Sweet Nothings – recorded and penned 2014

Sweet Nothings

Click below to hear the reading

 

I can build air castles on the most gossamer of foundations

Turn a look into a lifetime,

Freeze frame a moment and stretch it into eternity

Where we never grow old, cranky or away from each other

 

I can draw from imagination stores most active

Off the cuff words in passing

Take that phrase spoken in haste

Create the rest of the conversational lifespan in my mind

 

Active, creative minds can be boon or bane

Giving life to things that don’t exist

Overwriting the reality of things as they are

Constantly writing a story that lives only in one head

 

I will swallow you whole, savoring every taste of you

But, is the flavor on my tongue your real taste?

Or… is it a confection I created from

Only the fleeting aroma of your presence

 

And when I stop, and step out of my imagination

Hot, harsh reality blares its eyes at me

Then rolls them, and sighs

Sweet nothings – that is all they were, in the end.

  1. Beautiful. I’m so glad you take the time to vocalize. & I totally just said I’m into spoken writing atm: this makes all the difference with some works. & likely improves nearly all of them.

    Especially regarding an intimacy with the artist.

    & you’re the first poet I’ve found doing this.

    Beautiful piece. ❤
